Skeletons In Lingerie: Is This Spoof On Victoria’s Secret Funny Or Tasteless?
Sure, it’s hypocritical and fat-phobic of ABC to air the annual Victoria’s Secret fashion show starring Heidi Klum’s glorious ta-tas while also demanding “excessive re-edits” on this plus-size lingerie commercial from Lane Bryant. But what do we think of LandlineTV’s spoof on Victoria’s Secret: a faux-sexy commercial starring skeletons in a blond wig and lingerie (a spoof which a gleeful Lane Bryant posted on their Inside Curve blog!)? Is it a biting social commentary on body image standards or a tasteless joke, considering the culture of body-hating and eating disorders not only among models but all women? I personally am in the “biting social commentary” camp, but at least one blogger with an eating disorder, who I follow on Twitter, was vehement that lady-skeletons are not “appropriate.” Tell us what you think in the comments.
